Advantages of an installation with overhead fidelity operated doors, centralized in a console fixed to the wall, vs the spring counterbalanced ones.
The following relates to an installation with periodically inspected (programmed inspections) tools, in full efficiency in order to grant performing and safe working conditions.
such condition conforms to laws and cost reduction purposes, particularly for:
presently compulsory local norms
tools frequency of use
inspection and maintenance costs
comparing 2 systems: loading bay complete with electro-hydraulic dock leveller and overhead door
the traditional system
dock leveller with motor into pit:
accident risks during maintenance:
also with all foreseen securities, working under the leveller, specially in absence of the tail lift clearance, remains uncomfortable and dangerous because there is no direct control of what happens above the leveller (picture a)
the docking zone is often disregarded and the pits become a waste deposit, with beats and rats (picture b)
the centralized campisa + fidelity system
leveller without motor in pit:
no maintenance under the pit:
the powering of the door and the leveller is unique and is positioned in a fixed on the wall at eye height console, for a simple and easy inspection, with normal hygienic conditions (picture c)
n0 accident risks during the maintenance:
for the same as point 1 reasons operations are made without any accident risk
about 35. 000 (at the end of 2005) installations of fidelity doors and loading bays are always under intensive use. Our after sales dept has supplied during 2005 only 11 spare consoles, of which 8 were broken by collision and 3 burned out because connected to 380 v instead of 200 v. This is the best prove of campisa's supplies reliability, 100% tested at works.
